The Ruling on Practicing Martial Arts and the Ruling on Deadening the Nerves

April 7, 2012

Bismillah

Questions and Answers have been edited to only include the questions and answers themselves.

Translated from: http://www.al-sunan.com/vb/archive/index.php/t-1153.html

هل يجوز للرجل تعلم فنون القتال كالكراتي والكونج فو ..إلخ , وهل يجوز له أن يميت حواس اليدين والرجلين بحيث لا يشعر بيديه ورجليه عندما يضرب خصمه , فتكون بذلك قوية ؟ مثال : كوضع الرجل يده في الجمر ..إلى غير ذلك؟

(In the third question, the questioner asks): Is it permissible for a man to learn martial arts like Karate, Kung Fu, etc. And is it permissible for him to deaden the nerves in his hands and feet so that he doesn’t feel anything in his hands and feet when he strikes his opponent, so that he becomes stronger through that (deadening the nerves)? For example: a man putting his hand on hot coals and other than that?

لابأس أن يتعلم مثل هذه الفنون للدفاع عن نفسه

وليس كل مافعله الكفار حرم مشابهتهم فيه بغير قصد فإن تعلم مثل ذلك لمصلحة الدفاع عن النفس كما استعمل النبي صلى لله عليه وسلم المنجنيق وقد كان الروم أو غيرهم من الكفار يستعملونه لمصلحة القتال وقد نصب النبي صلى لله عليه وسلم على أهل الطائف المنجنيق 17 يوما قال بن كثير في إرشاد الفقيه سنده جيد

و الله أعلم

(Answer by Shaikh Maahir bin Thaafir al Qahtaanee)

There is no problem with him learning the likes of these martial arts for defending himself. Not everything the kuffaar do is unlawful. Resembling them is not intended by this. So if he learns something like this for the benefit of defending himself (this is okay), like the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) used a catapult – and the Romans or other than them from the kuffaar were using it to benefit them in fighting. And Ibn Katheer said in his Irshaad al Faqeeh – with a good chain- that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) used the catapult against the people of Taa’if for 17 days. And Allah knows best.

ولاينبغي له أن يعذب نفسه بالجمر ليميت إحساسه فنفسه ليس ملكا له ومايدريه عن مآل هذه المقامرة بالبدن فلعله لن يتعرض لقتال فيحتاج دفاعا عن النفس فتكون تلك المشقة والتعذيب الذي تعرض له عديم الفائدة بل قد يضره لأن لله ماخلق الإحساس إلا لحكمة فقد تكسر يده وتتهشم عظامه وتجرح جرحا بالغا يضره جدا وهو لايدري وليس في ذلك قربة وقد روى البخاري في صحيحه عَنْ أَنَسٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وسَلَّمَ رَأَى شَيْخًا يُهَادَى بَيْنَ ابْنَيْهِ قَالَ مَا بَالُ هَذَا قَالُوا نَذَرَ أَنْ يَمْشِيَ قال إِنَّ اللهَ عَنْ تَعْذِيبِ هذا نَفْسَهُ لَغَنِيٌّ وأَمَرَهُ أَنْ يَرْكَبَ

And it is not appropriate for him that he harms himself with hot coals to deaden his nerves, for his body doesn’t belong to him. And he doesn’t know the results of this gambling with his body. Perhaps he will never have to fight. He needs to know how to defend himself, but this punishment and breaking down (of his body) that he is exposing himself to has no benefit. Rather, it will harm him. Because Allah did not create the nerves except for a wisdom. So he breaks his hand, destroys his bones, and harms

(himself) with a far-reaching harm and he doesn’t know. And you don’t get closer to Allah by doing that. Bukhari narrated in his Saheeh from Anas (Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (sallallahu alayhe wa sallam) saw an old man being held up between his two sons, so he said, ‘What is his affair?’ They said, ‘He vowed that he would walk.’ He said, ‘Verily Allah is indeed free from needing him to punish himself.’ And he commanded him to ride.
